After seven years and seven successful seasons, is the show ready to come back?
I know what you’re thinking, has it really been over long enough for a reboot? And could the suspense of the original series really be recreated?
Honestly, we don’t know…
There’s a lot that’s still up in the air with this reboot, but we’ve gathered what we do know so far.
Firstly, we know that Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is behind the reboot idea; he has also worked on The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, so he knows about teen television and about bringing an iconic series back to life.
We also know it will feature a new story and new characters, so we won’t be holding our breath for a return of the iconic five friends we know and love.
Although, we might see one star back but in a different capacity, working before the camera. Lucy Hale, who played Aria Montgomery has said previously that she is so protective of the show and that if there ever was a reboot she’d want to produce it, telling Entertainment Tonight:
“When the time comes that they want to do it with a whole new cast, I might have to produce it because I’m way too protective of it.”
In terms of the reboot getting the green light, right now there’s no network attached to the project and there’s no release date or cast details, so right now, it looks like its just in the early development stages. Marlene King, the show’s original creator has also mentioned nothing about her involvement as of yet, so it’s a waiting game right now.
In conclusion, with many questions still unanswered, it sounds like a PLL episode (particularly one towards the very end when things got ext we will keep you posted on future details of the series. We know once it comes out we’ll most likely be hooked again with the new generation of A’s victims.
